Despite the abundance of patterns, I restricted myself to patterns which were around my size and had interesting details that were different from patterns I already had in my stash. Here's what I came away with:
Le-Roy Weldons 9300. I liked the shaped waistband
Le-Roy Weldons 8767. I love the shape of the shorter length dress, though it might look a little maternity, in reality.
Vogue 2461 - I was sure this was 1980s, with the pastel colours, but it's from 1971 according to Vintage Pattern Wiki. I think the sleeveless and short sleeves versions could look lovely though it is designed for knits. Perhaps my opportunity to get to grips to knits?
Style 1707, a sweet bias-cut dress. I'm not convince that this would suit my figure as my shoulders are proportionally quite wide - I really like it though and have not tried sewing on the bias yet.
These 3 I bought primarily because they were the oldest patterns I've ever seen! I think the toddler ones are 1940s/50s and the pinafore dress is definitely 1940s - just check out that silhouette! I kind of like the pinafore, but would have to scale it up from a 32" bust.
Finally, my favourite:
I just love the wrap around blouse - might not pair it with a straw top hat though (or would I...?).
I think it might also be in my size too. The pattern itself is unprinted and the leaflet lists multiple sizes however the addressed envelope it came in has 36" written on it beside the reference number of the pattern (5003). It's postmarked 1961, so I know when it dates to too.
This little haul was my first vintage sewing pattern success at a charity shop for some time, however I've also been buying vintage patterns online - after several months of utter restraint I gave in and picked up some beauties. Look forward to sharing those with you too!
